Art and design

We believe that the linked subjects of Art and Design Technology are a very important part of our curriculum. Art education stimulates creativity and imagination; design enables children to use their knowledge from other areas of the curriculum to solve real problems. Together the subjects equip children with the skills needed for lifelong learning.

The children will learn to use a range of different materials creatively to design and make products. They will draw, paint, print, and sculpt to develop skills, while exploring colour, pattern, texture and form. Children will use technology to produce prototypes, images and for food testing. They will review and evaluate their work and study inspiring artists, architects and designers.
